My first blog hop!!









Let's see if I can do this according to directions... I've never been very good at following them! :)  I found this while searching for different Mom blogs and it seems like a great idea!  5 minutes for Mom started this several years ago and it seems like it is a hit!!  Check them out, the little I've perused their blog, it is full of great information!

My name is Renee and I am a stay at home mom of two little girls who are the light of my life (currently 3 and 18months). I am married to the absolute best man that God could have chosen for me and am living my dream on the beautiful Washington Palouse!   Our lives revolve around farming seasons, family, basketball (my husband's passion), and anything outdoors.  Although my three year old might tell you her life revolves around Curious George... but we're working on that!

I started this blog... well, I've started and stopped it several times, but in the last week I made a commitment to stick with it, so here I am.  I created this blog to share my mostly up but sometimes down journey of being a mom, farmer's wife, runner, woman of faith, and, as I said in my title, everything in between!!  I am not the most creative soul, my background is in mechanical engineering and software consulting/project management so I can't guarantee that you will find lots of crafty tid-bits from me.  HOWEVER, I am realizing that I need to have some creative outlets for myself besides my kids and so am finding myself drawn to try more crafty (and to me scary) projects that I've never tried before.  I will definitely bring you along on those journeys!!

Needless to say, as you can probably tell from the above paragraph, I'm still in the process of figuring out what my "blogging identity" is, but have been thoroughly enjoying the process.  Thanks so much for stopping by, please leave a comment and I promise I will give you a visit back.

Hi I'm here from the party, nice to meet you! You sound like me last year, I was new to blogging and the UBP was so inspiring and I've grown my blog (a tiny bit) since then. So fun! I'm gonna become a follower because I think we have some stuff in common (though I've never farmed!). Happy partying!

Hi there, I'm here for the party. :-) You're blog is a lot like mine, kind of eclectic, which is just fine!

Shelly said...

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I'm a new follower of yours. My boys and your girls are the same age, and I feel like I can really relate to a lot of what you said. I'm not crafty myself, but I wish I were. My craft ability ends at the glue gun!

I look forward to following along with you.

Thanks so much for stopping by and saying "hi" during the party! It's my first Blog Party, too... Blogging is a wonderful outlet when you are a mom, especially if you are out in the country and don't get into town much (we live in farmland area, too). I hope you enjoy the party and continue with your blog!

Thank you for stopping by my blog, and for the kind comments. I will be following your blog also, and I can't wait to see more.

It's so nice to "meet" you! I really look forward to learning more about you and your family. I lived in Seattle just after college and loved it. I'm back in my home state of Texas now living in a small rural town. I think we have a lot in common even though we live miles a part. I'm now following :)

Hi, there! I'm Martine, and like you, this is my first blog party. I was intrigued by your blog's title, which I picked up from the UBP2011. I love that you're on a farm; we don't have many of those here in the big city of Manila! (I'm in the Philippines, by the way)

I hope we can follow each other back--it's a great way to get your blog read by others! My home's at http://daintymom.blogspot.com and on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Dainty-Mom/156910980985765

Have a great time at the blog party!
